Deveaux is a reflection on the life of a South Carolina sea bird rookery known as Deveaux Bank at the North Edisto River. The author and photographer, Dana Beach, has visited Deveaux regularly for twenty-five years.
In his book, Beach chronicles the annual cycle of reproduction and renewal on this ephemeral sand bar, and the work of the scientists and conservationists who labor to understand and protect it. The book’s stories and images provide a compelling call to action to save Deveaux and sites like it–wellsprings of the Lowcountry’s natural beauty and diversity.
The Coastal Conservation League has played a lead role in protecting all types of coastal wildlife habitat, especially critical nesting and feeding areas for seabirds and shorebirds like Deveaux Bank.
